Workforce Solutions Deep East Texas Hosts Job Fair for Veterans, their Families and the Public

Oct 28, 2021

The 10th Annual Hiring Red, White and You! Statewide Job Fair is set for Thursday, November 4, 2021, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm., at the VFW Memorial Post 1836, 1800 Ford Chapel Road, in Lufkin.

Among the participating employers are: Allegiant Industrial, City of Lufkin, Dollar Tree, Etech, Farmers Insurance District 07, Georgia-Pacific, Job Corps, Kemper Insurance, Lonestar DQ, MTC/Diboll Correctional Center, Naskila Gaming, Pilgrim's, Provalus, Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Texas Home Health (Accentcare), and William George.

In addition to meeting employers in person, Deep East Texas job seekers will have virtual access to review the job openings and ‘chat’ with employers online. The event is organized by Workforce Solutions Deep East Texas in partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Veterans Commission, Texas Medical Center and VFW Memorial Post 1836.

Hiring Red, White & YOU! is free and open to the general public with priority access during the first hour, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., for current and prior military, and their spouses.

“The September unemployment rate for the Deep East Texas region was 6.3%. Even though the unemployment numbers are falling, businesses are still contacting us daily with immediate openings for quality jobs. This is an ideal opportunity for those who are ready to get back to work or reset their careers,” said Mark Durand, executive director of Workforce Solutions Deep East Texas. “Additionally, this hybrid hiring format is designed to save valuable time and enable job seekers and hiring recruiters to meet in the most convenient manner, whether that is in-person or online.”

This year, the fair is being hosted in person at the VFW and through an online platform. Thanks to many community partners, physical locations throughout the region will be open with access to the internet, computers and assistance for job seekers.

Visit any of these locations on November 4, 2021, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for Computer and Internet Access.

Workforce Staff will be available for assistance.
